Link from ESPN:
Adam Richman, host of the Travel Channel series "Man v. Food," grew up in Brooklyn idolizing athletes. During the first two seasons of his show, he has participated in eating challenges across the United States, including in college football hotbeds like Austin, Texas, and Columbus, Ohio. He has run the food triathlon in Durham, N.C., with NFL star Dhani Jones as a teammate. And, in an episode that will air Wednesday, Richman indulges his passion for baseball by visiting three minor league ballparks that dole out bizarre variations on classic ballpark food, in true "Man v. Food" style.
Page 2 talked to Richman about how to eat like a man but still meet women, what a bacon cheeseburger inside a doughnut tastes like and how he differs from Paul Newman.
Page 2: The concept of your show is something that every guy recognizes. It's basically, "I double-dog dare you to eat that giant hamburger." How did you end up accepting dares for a living?
Adam Richman: I'm glad you picked up on that, because that's exactly the vibe. It's not like, "Let's roll out the giant eating machine!" The aplomb with which I approach these challenges is just like you and your boys on a road trip -- you see this cool place to eat, you pull over and suddenly you see a sign that says, "Finish the ______ and everyone in your party gets a T-shirt." Then your boys start punching you in the arm and saying, "C'mon! You can totally do it!" And then it becomes this shared story.
"Man v. Food" Airtime
Interested in watching the "Man v. Food" baseball special? It airs on the Travel Channel on Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
I always wanted to say this if I got interviewed by ESPN: You just have to play them one game at a time. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose and sometimes it rains. I'm just happy to be here, and hope I can help the ballclub.
It's weird; I never did an eating challenge before the show started. I had a food background and an acting background, and I found out about the opportunity to host the show through my agent. I auditioned and ended up with this great job. I didn't know I could do it, they didn't know I could do it and, quite frankly, I still sometimes wonder if I can live through it.
You make it clear at the beginning of the show that you are not a professional competitive eater. How does an ordinary guy prepare for one of these challenges?
Prayer. Have Zantac, will travel.
Truth is, I eat extraordinarily healthfully when I'm not doing a challenge -- which I think is the biggest component to any success I've had, in terms of staying alive and staying somewhat appealing to the fairer sex through Seasons 1 and 2 of "Man v. Food."
Hydration is really big, and for the big-quantity challenges -- people think I'm full of it -- exercise. I do a very heavy leg and back workout, which gets my metabolism just screaming. It really helps.
Competitive eaters are often pretty lean.
Generally speaking. That's because adipose tissue [body fat] restricts the expansion of your stomach. That's something I've learned while doing the show. So you want as little fat on your stomach as possible.
How long does it take to recover?
Depends upon the challenge. It's a different recovery from quantity than it is for spice.
Aside from the eating, you also get to tour American towns large and small. How do you choose your destinations each season?
Generally speaking, the challenges are our point of departure. There's no episode without a challenge. Once we find a good challenge, we contextualize it with the other episodes to find out what will make a great season. From there, these cities have varied options of where else to go, a nice culinary panoply of things to try. The other stuff comes through due diligence and research.
I see Springfield, Ill., on your list of upcoming episodes. How'd that town get slotted in with the likes of Austin, New York and Honolulu?
The food challenge in Springfield is one of the oldest in America. I always say it doesn't matter whether I win or lose, it's all about being part of the culinary folklore of a city -- and since this is one of the oldest, it was something I couldn't really pass up. It's also a place that people don't usually go on vacation, but it's an important part of our country. It's the boyhood home of one of our most iconic presidents [Abraham Lincoln]. It has an identity. For better or for worse, to shine a candle on a place we can take pride in, is something we can cherish.
The sandwich in Springfield is called "The Horseshoe," which is just found in south-central Illinois, and I don't think it's ever been shown on TV before. So the opportunity to showcase a new food is really cool.
If you're on a real cross-country road trip, you're going to stop in places like that to eat.
That's the thing! It's just on Route 66. The original corndog is from Springfield, and the birthplace is still standing.
Most of the challenges boil down to a "Cool Hand Luke"-style "eat a lot of something very fast," or, "eat something very hot and somehow manage to finish it." Which is tougher?
Let me make a distinction. The "Cool Hand Luke" comparison kind of works, but that was about eating multiples of something, which is more like competitive eating. I think "Man v. Food's" sine qua non is one big burger or one big pizza, one big sandwich. So it's not 50 eggs. I'd have to eat an ostrich egg.
I'm telling you right here, they're all tough. I love my job -- the challenges, the actual experience. But the actual doing is very difficult. If it were easy, it wouldn't be a challenge, right?
Do you ever get a chance to enjoy the way something tastes?
Oh, absolutely I do. Most of these challenges are freakin' ridiculous, because they taste so good. Half of the time when I win on these big-quantity ones, I'm coasting solely on taste. Even with some of the spicy ones, it's the taste that actually propels me onward. It's not like I'm a rapacious eating machine; it's more like, "Damn! I want to keep eating this cheesesteak! I want another bite!"
You're headed out to the ballparks in an upcoming episode. You can get the standard hot dogs and peanuts just about anywhere, so what types of unique foods are you focusing on?
Definitely, there were lots of variations on a theme. I love minor league ball. My favorite sports are probably college hoops, college football and minor league baseball. There are some major league teams I root for -- I'm a Yankees fan, I'm a Dolphins fan -- but I love minor league baseball. I always have, I always will. I find it to be truly the love of the game made manifest. It's very much about the fan, very much about the experience. Regardless of whether it's a franchise team -- like the West Michigan Whitecaps or the Charleston RiverDogs -- or whether it's an independent Frontier League team like the Gateway Grizzlies. It's athletes who play with all heart.
So I find that the food in minor league ballparks is all about personality, rather than price point, which is so endemic to the major leagues. I'm a New Yorker, and we have these two teams that tank in the postseason but just got new stadiums with top restaurateurs. Then you go to someplace like Charleston, S.C., where they've done something so brilliant as to give each hotdog stand its own personality and its own signature dog. It makes each snack bar a destination, instead of just another place to plunk down your credit card and get a beer or a hot dog in that little foil thing. DayGlo cheese sauce -- hell no!
It's like, "You can get the Homewrecker dog over here! The Hickory dog over here! The Carolina dog!" When was the last time you were at a ballpark and got a hot dog with wasabi, pickled okra and sweet potato mustard? Or Philly cheesesteak nachos, or a hamburger between two halves of a Krispy Kreme doughnut? They can do that at a minor league park, because it's about the experience.
I've heard of celebrities getting body parts insured. Have you considered taking out a policy on your stomach or taste buds?
I have health insurance, but nothing crazy like Barbra Streisand insuring her nose. If anything, I would assume it would be my teeth or my mouth rather than my gut.
The bottom line is I'm still going to eat even if I'm not doing "Man v. Food," but not those kinds of portions. That's the great thing -- because we generally shoot a challenge a week, we don't do a bunch in a row, so I have time to recover. It's actually helped me adhere to my diet more than I did before. My cheat days are built in, so I'm less likely to be stupid. Sure, it sucks walking past the pizzeria in summer, when I'd love to grab a slice. But I know before long I'll be back on the road with chili, burgers, hot dogs and fries; it's like I'm perpetually at a sixth-grader's birthday party.
Then I know when I go home I can have vegetables and stuff. And when I'm at my breaking point and I want to do something naughty, along comes "Man v. Food" and I can indulge.
It's important for me to stay in shape. If I start looking really, really bad, folks will start to worry, and they won't enjoy the show. Plus, I want to have sex! So that motivates me.
Any plans to take the show outside of the U.S. in the future, or is sport eating more of an American phenomenon?
Absolutely not just an American thing. There are no concrete plans to do that yet, but we've uncovered a plethora of international eating challenges. You've got Australia, Japan, Germany, Polynesia, China -- there's quite a lot of them! There are cultures that extol these competitions. There's been ample talk and investigation, but we're still trying to figure out how it will work within the context of a season. I feel the sheer expense and effort of putting together an international episode is so huge that, for a half-hour show, we'd have to film multiple episodes on one trip. Hope springs eternal for Season 3! My passport's valid. I'm ready to go.
Given that we're in a recession, your show seems perfect for someone who wants to discover America on a budget. Is this a really affordable way to have a good time?
Absolutely, and I'm proud that on my show we're not going to Guam or the French Riviera or Monaco or Trieste [Italy]. We're going to Pittsburgh or Springfield. These are the destinations that don't require a travel agent or a reservation. They require putting the car in drive and stepping on the accelerator. A family of four can go to a place that's in their own backyard, and have meals that are unique and special, and made with love and tradition. They can read the menu and speak to the waitress but still be in a place that's different from home. It's too great of a gift to look away. As someone who has worked in these types of restaurants and comes from working-class roots in Brooklyn, I love that we're bringing an audience to these mom-and-pop places and building a sense of national pride at a time when that pride may be wanting. It's the best feeling in the world.

Mike Vick signs a deal with Nike!
"One of Michael Vick's representatives announced today at a sporting goods symposium in New York that the Eagles quarterback has signed an endorsement deal with Nike.
The Sports Business Journal reported that Mike Principe, managing director for BEST, the agency that represents Vick, confirmed the deal, but that Principe would reveal no other details.
This is a fascinating turn of events since Nike had cut its ties to Vick in 2007 after he pled guilty to dog-fighting charges. When it first suspended Vick's deal, a company statement said Nike considers "any cruelty to animals inhumane and abhorrent." Nike reportedly made 30,000 of the Vick V shoes and dropped the shoe before distribution, costing the company a reported $1.5 million. "

She later moved on to the ICA, ( Instituto de Cultura y Arte), where she excelled as one of the most gifted students of the academy. After graduating with honors from the ICA and the Ballet School of Norma Garcia with a Bachelor in Art with mention to Classic Ballet, she became part of the Dominican Nacional Ballet as the youngest soloist member in 2002. Partaking in all major classic and modern shows in the Dominican Republic, she is nominated twice by the Secretaria de Estado de la Juventud for her work in the category of Cultural Development. She initiated her modeling career in 2004, participating in magazines and television for prestigious Dominican enterprises. Rosa moves to United States in 2006 where her career takes a new turn, distinguishing herself in several areas of the modeling world, featuring in magazines, radio, tv programs and commercials and numerous music videos.
Here is a video of her in Miami..Sidenote: All you females talking about 'how silly that stretching video shit was' need to watch the video. She addresses that subject. You might actually like the answer.

I mean I think that the boy MIGHT be able to help us. I know that these are preseason highlights but still. The boy from the HBCU could really help us in the red zone/short yardage.

Here is the thing. I can't bring this message by showing the video of the boy in the Chi without feeling like someone, SOMEWHERE, will take it, see as 'okay' or acceptable. On some "We are going to do that to some cat.." type shit. So I won't be showing it. That saying "If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything..." has never rung truer in my head than it does right now. I can't condone that shit. I know some street niggas that would LOVE TO SEE IT. Sorry fam. You are gonna have to GOOGLE THAT SHIT. Not here. It is the same reason why I don't run many local news stories of the places that I consider 'home'. I am not going to glorify that shit. Anything that is done out of necessity? I don't like but I understand it. That out and out 'We did it 'cause we can and have no fucking care as to who likes it' shit? Nope.
I have yet to really delve into the whole 'embarrassing'/violence for the sake of violence type videos. I probably never will. I have seen how showing those videos can spiral into a sense of 'Oh well, that's just how shit goes down..' that I want no part of. I don't want to send a message that it is okay in any way.
First story is about the boy in Chicago. Link to the story here if you don't know about it.. I don't feel bad providing the link but I won't be providing the video. That is a non video link.
He was at a place of refuge. A community center. Not out at 1:30 am. Not on the 'dope boy' corner. The community center. You can't let your kid go to the COMMUNITY CENTER NOW? Fucking really? Again, people will bemoan the lack of support by the government. The white man. Blame it on some other shit. Facts are facts. Nobody 'told these kids' to do what they did. They make conscious decisions every day. What to eat. What part of town to pull this type of shit on. (You didn't see 'em doing it over there with the Latin Kings hang out in the Chi did you? Yeah..)What gals to holler at? They KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING WAS WRONG. Period. I am sure they all have a story. We all do shit. Doesn't make it RIGHT. @ them having a story.
So now they have identified some of the boys in the video and they have charged them. Again, I won't be showing mugshots of them for as DEPLORABLE as the acts they committed are, I don't wanna 'glorify' them by giving them the 'street credit' a mugshot seems to bring in the minds of some people. Nor will I be a party to the potshots on the other end of the spectrum that posting up shots of them in the mug room. You wanna see that? Go here: That shit was BEYOND unnecessary and I hope they let them live. IN JAIL. This ain't The Wire or some other TV show but I hope they follow them in jail and film that shit. Let the kids see what it REALLY is when you go to jail. What REALLY HAPPENS. Not none of that glorified shit that no one can either confirm or deny by some cat who mighta done some bids here and there way 'across the way' or by someone who went to a local jail where they were 'protected'. Naw. Send them away to Texas or Arizona where that reach can't reach out. In there with some REAL KILLERS...Maybe shit will get real for them then.
"But they are children 'Ware....."
Look many of you who know me know that I am as compassionate as they come with people. Especially kids. I am that way probably to a fault in some cases. Not in this case. I know too many people who have done shit like this. They don't change unless something DRASTIC happens in their lives to make them change IF THEY CHANGE AT ALL. I used to think we could save everybody. We can't. Sorry. Just like everyone isn't meant to be a thug, everyone can't be saved and turned into a productive citizen. That is the way the cookie crumbles. One of these cats is 19 years old and two of them are 18 years old. They are young but men at this point. They are not children. The 16 year old? He thought he was a man and made a grown man decision. He needs to live with it. If he made grown man decisions like 'moving that work', getting coupe'd up, and the like you would PAT HIS ASS ON THE BACK talking about he is a 'grown man doing grown man things taking care of himself'. @ the 'street' cats that are reading this. You don't get to pick and choose when you wanna be a man. Being a man is a full time job fam. He was man enough to commit this crime so he needs to take responsibility and 'man up' and take his punishment. I don't wanna hear that he didn't know any better. That bullshit excuse is just as bad as saying "Well maybe the white people of old had no clue slavery was bad....." FOH. They KNEW BETTER AND THIS MOFO DID TOO. And I saw the video. He was in it and participating. Heavy. So there is no 'benefit of the doubt.'. It is time to stop making excuses people. It is time to stop hiding behind misconstrued/rewritten slogans and shit and time to start acting like civilized people. Period.
Second story of the day is that karaoke shit in Connecticut. It also epitomizes why there are age limits on bars, clubs and even some parties even NOW more than ever. Six girls (all under aged at the bar) decided that they didn't like the singing performance of the singer. Do they leave the building? Hell no. They commence to beating her up. Really? For those of you who don't know the story CLICK HERE and come back. Again, I know that on some level this is 'funny'. @ the thought. But if you look at the story again and just PUT YOUR GIRL/YOUR SISTER/YOUR MOTHER/YOUR DAUGHTER or any women that you halfway give a shit about in the equation you might actually see how fucking pathetic this shit really is. Yes, I am cussing 'cause it seems to be the only language some of you understand. This is bullshit behavior too. First off, your ass isn't even SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE FUCKING BAR but they let you in. Okay. Not the first time that has happened and won't be the last. Do you sit down and act like you got some sense though? No. You hear some shit you don't like and you and your girls take it upon yourselves to BEAT UP THE SINGER? Who the fuck are you to run around 6 on 1 and beat people up for SINGING? At an event where that is what the person is there to do? Now I hear some of you people saying in your mind "Maybe she was mouthing off to them....". I HIGHLY doubt that she was mouthing off to six girls. She might have asked them 'Who are you talking to?" or some shit but that is HARDLY a reason to beat her down. And if you think it is, the NEXT TIME A COP ASKS YOU A LEGIT QUESTION AND YOU GET SMART AND GET YOUR ASS BEAT, I don't wanna hear it. Same logic applies if it is 'cool' for these chicks to go on her for that. (And I don't like cops...Don't have any reason to fear them but I am not a fan of them in general.) Again with the 'picking and choosing' with certain shit. HERE IS THE KICKER THOUGH. There were six of you. Look at homegirl. Really??? Highly unnecessary on so many levels. People are really bitchmade nowadays. So it is L's all around for your sorry asses too.
People. Do better. Please. I know we all make mistakes but these are not MISTAKES. These are wrong ACTS. People know better. Only when they get caught does it 'become' a mistake or something and THAT IS WRONG.
I am not sure how we change that mentality of 'oops I am sorry but I have done it now and want my 'street' rep to go with it' but we need to fix that shit. Black President or not. Otherwise we are going have those in power giving some quasi Hov quote like this:
I wanna end your existence (career) but you are gonna do it for me....-Hov
We are doing a good fucking job of doing it. Can we stop please? Shit.
Nas weighing in on the Chi situation.
Or maybe you need to hear it from a 'hip hop hero'? Fine.....Here ya go..
People were stunned and saddened after seeing the chilling video of the fatal beating of 16-year old Chicago student, Darrion Albert. A cellphone camera caught footage of the honor student being hit over the head with a 2x4 and then being punched, kicked and stomped to death. The boy's tragic story touched the hearts and minds of millions and apparently made it's mark on the Hip-Hop community as one of the most respected and prolific artists of our time is speaking out about the incident.
Nas penned an open letter to the youth involved in the incident for Global Grind. Young Escobar reflected on his younger days seeing senseless violence and attempted to relate to the children he deems as “young warriors.”
Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong wars! Killing each other is definitely played out. Being hurt from the lost of a love one was never cool.
Dear Young Warriors fighting the wrong war! I know that feeling, that frustration with life and needing to take it out on someone, any one. But....
We chose the dumbest things to go the hardest for. I remember seeing deaths over 8 ball jackets, Fila sneakers, and name plate chains. Deaths over "he say, she say"!!!!! "I'm from this block or I'm from that block", or "my moms n pops is f*cked up now the whole world gotta pay"!!!
I remember feeling like I was the hardest "n*gga" breathing. And I couldn't wait to prove it. But let's think. What are we really proving?? And proving what to who?? Everybody knows Chicago breeds the strongest of the strong but I just feel, me, being ya brother from another state feels your pain as if I grew up with you in ya very own household.
In one of the realest parts of the letter Nas brings up the plight of racism in our world and the people that “love to see them down.” He also mentions the classic street movies that glamorize and sensationalize violence saying that they “left theaters years ago.”
You have the ability and mindpower to change they way we are looked at. Look who's watching us young warriors, look who's throwing us in jail constantly, look at the ignorance in the world. Look at the racist dogs who love to see us down. Loving to bury us in the ground or in jail where we continue this worthless war on one another.
Young warriors.... We are WASTING more and more time. We gotta get on our jobs and take over the world. Cuz this movie left the theaters years ago, Juice, Menace, Boys n the Hood , Blood n Blood Out, Belly!
He ends the letter with a question to the youth and a statement that sums up the whole situation, “This shit sucks.”
When we see each other why do we see hatred? Why were we born in a storm, born soldiers, WARRIORS....and instead of building each other up we are at war with each other.. May the soul of this young person find peace with the almighty. I'm with you young warriors. You're me and I'm you. But trust me! you are fighting the wrong war.
This sh*t sucks !!
Here is a map of what is going on in Chicago alone. http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF8&hl=en&msa=0&msid=113815459076713258356.000463b77495ac9c316f8&source=embed&ll=41.838874,-87.673645&spn=0.358097,0.583649&z=10
Bear in mind this is a HOMICIDE map. Not a 'Who got shot' map. Death. Finality. No reset button. No turning off the game and getting three more lives to work with. No 'oops...' I can fix it. Sorry won't do it. They are gone. FOREVER. Think about that people.
Her blog is here:
Every once in a while you need to hear- from another woman, and not your man- that you’ve got some work to do in the “get real” category. Us womenfolk can sometimes confuse our wants for our needs, so I’m going to try and sort a few of these out- hopefully it’ll make you think and you’ll be able to take it a step further in your own life and identify things that you think you want vs things you probably aren’t aware you need. Doing so, I think, will make you a better woman- it’ll also make you better in your relationship. So here goes:
3. Poetry vs “Real Talk” Many women think they want their man to “talk pretty” to them- say deep, meaningful and poetic things in a way that no other man has before, in a way that makes our hearts flutter, our minds become befuddled and that place between our thighs throb a little bit. Of course it’s nice to hear lovely words from our men- but in reality, we aren’t going to hear that stuff all the time, and we don’t want to, because it’s not realistic. What we as women need is for men to keep it real and honest- that’s it. That’s not to say we want our feelings hurt, of course not, there is a place for tact in all of this- but we need that real talk from our men more than anything. The truth of the matter is we don’t give men enough credit when the do “keep it real” because we’re sensitive beings, our feelings often hurt easily and that causes us to rebuke whatever has been said to us- but that doesn’t help keep the lines of communication between the sexes open either.
So we have to find that balance, and as women, it’s incumbent upon us to do that extra work when our man is giving it to us until we scream his name and speak in tongues real. We have to listen; men are talking, we’re just selective in what we’re allowing ourselves to hear.
2. Know Your Role I can feel some of you getting riled up over this one, but take a breath and be open. I’m not saying you have to be barefoot and pregnant and in the kitchen all the time, unless of course you want to be- but women do have a role to play when in a relationship- especially with a brotha. We can empower our men or we can make them want to choke the shit outta us belittle them with our biting sarcasm.
Women these days are too hard, I’ll just say it. Men don’t want a woman that acts like a dude, or talks like one for that matter. I certainly am guilty of letting the f-bomb fly, but around my man I only use it when I’m bent over the counter begging him to fuck me harder I’ve burnt dinner.
We are nurturers ladies. Try nurturing your man and see how his appreciation for you grows in leaps and bounds.
1. Making love- or making toes curl Again, ladies, you all have some work to do in this area. It goes hand in hand with number 3 on this list. Too many women think about sex in terms of soap opera love scenes; candles, satin sheets, tender words to your ear before he takes you in his arms and makes love to you all night. *yawn* Let’s get real.
There is a time and place for making love. I truly believe that while men are fully capable of it, they can’t do it all the time- it takes a build up of emotion for a man to make love to a woman- but he can fuck her any time, any day.
Ladies, you need to sharpen your fucking skills. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not suggesting this so that you can increase his sexual satisfaction, I’m suggesting it so you can increase your sexual satisfaction. If what you do on the counter on the dryer bent over the couch in the back of the car on the kitchen floor in the shower in bed you learned from the bible- you’re failing your man and yourself.
If all you know is missionary, you’re wasting a perfectly good sex life.
If you don’t give head you should be ashamed of yourself.
If you won’t let him talk dirty to you- best believe he’s feeling cheated out of a full sexual experience.
If sex is controlled- you’re just not doing it right. The best sex happens when you let go of everything rational and grab onto pleasure- follow the pleasure. Only do what feels good.
If you need help, then about 45 minutes before your man comes home, have three shots of whiskey a nice glass of wine and entice yourself. When he walks through the door, pounce.
Role play, dress up, speak with an accent, take control, make sex fun, and make it nasty. It’s ironic, but if you want your man to experience orgasmic pleasure (which is not the same as cumming) then you get on that dick and fuck his brains out- he’ll forget his name instantly and he will look at you like you’re a mythical goddess forever.
I have something in the chamber on this topic but stumbled upon this via one of my followers on Twitter. I tell you, it works in mysterious ways. @ Twitter and Facebook.
I am sure that you will formulate whatever opinions you like. I mean I think that MOST of us already know but hearing it from someone else kinda puts it in perspective.
It isn't all just women, sports, and music fam........
Props to Mr. Parsons for reminding me of this dude.

E! News has confirmed that Khloé Kardashian and the Los Angeles Lakers star swapped vows Sunday night in front of family, friends and team members (of both the NBA and E! variety) at a private estate in Beverly Hills.
The bride wore a Vera Wang gown and was escorted down the aisle by stepdad Bruce Jenner, with sisters Kim and Kourtney at her side, as well, as a 10-piece orchestra played in the background.
Find out what is up with Jeff Reed:
I don't know. Send him on a bar binge. Get him some more groupies. Let him get in a bar fight. DO SOMETHING THOUGH 'cause Jeff seems to have lost his mojo.
The Red Zone Offense:
I can't even begin to put my finger on what the REAL issue is. Last year, I thought it was the line. No. They are doing their job. I suspect it is play calls/and the lack of a TRUE shortage runner. We had one in training camp but it appears you won't be bringing him back. Fine. Find SOMEONE TO DO THE JOB. 'Cause right now, from the couch, I know the play call, the side, who is getting it and what gaps to fill to stop it. If I know then IMAGINE what opposing DC's know???
That blitzing in the middle of the field shit while playing a soft zone:
Cut that out. We are getting MURDERED on that shit. People know we blitz. We don't hide it. We don't try to confuse it very well. We just come. It might be time to cut that out. We are very predictable on third and long. Blitz up the gut, soft shell on the outside, MIDDLE WIDE OPEN. And it is costing us. A LOT.
Let Mike Wallace get more involved:
Not that I don't love Limas, 'cause I do. He is costing us 'opportunities'. Dropping balls and such on SURE TDS. Unacceptable. I know that you can't kill the man's confidence 'cause we might need him but Mike is BALLIN'.
Keep Troy over there with you 'till he is ready:
Again, it is Week 3. I don't want him hurt long term so I don't want you forcing him back out there if he is not ready. Regardless as to what I am typing here.
I love his play. I know we are trying not to stifle him. I can dig it. We might need some wrinkles in the plays that allow him to 'adjust on the fly' so he doesn't hold on to the rock too long. Again, the line is playing great in my opinion. So it is not them. It is the playcalling and the holding of the ball. When he holds it and it works, IT IS GREAT. When it doesn't, it is usually the reason why we lose.
I heard you say that you know last season was last season. I respect that. You have to let that carry over in the playing calling though fam. We are getting beat by teams at our own game. The 'hang around and steal it at the end/wear that ass down' game. Lets get back to our type of football please. Thanks.
I am not going to stop being a fan or no shit like that so don't take this that way. I just want us to win like you do. That's all.
Here is Week 3's NFL assignments
"NFL on CBS Announcer Assignments For the First 3 Weeks
The network press release websites are your friend. CBS always likes to give out announcing assignments a few weeks in advance, which is good for me because I’ll know which game the mute button will be at it’s highest of use. Hope San Diego will enjoy a couple of weeks with Dick Enberg.
WEEK 1 – Sept. 13
1:00 PM, ET:
Miami @ Atlanta – Greg Gumbel/Dan Dierdorf
Kansas City @ Baltimore – Ian Eagle/Rich Gannon
Denver @ Cincinnati – Gus Johnson/Dan Fouts

Week 3’s set of late games look depressing. Dolphins @ Chargers sounds good but the other two games are just “meh”. The Jets are going to be given top billing as long as Mark Sanchez is starting, apparently.
Just 8 days until kickoff of the regular season, and tomorrow begins the college football campaign!
The best time of the year is here, folks.

On Saturday 26th September 2009, @MashondaLoyal said:
After having a great evening with my son and enjoying some fun twit chat, I decided to sign off and get some work done. However, a few hours later I was advised that I should check @aliciakeys twit page. I've never reached out to her on twitter before. I feel our issues are a lot more serious than a website conversation. Not to mention that I've reached out to her many times in the beginning of this whole thing, as any wife would do. Unfortunately, I never succeeded in getting a response. The 1st time I meet AK, my husband introduced us to each other at an event. ( I have no choice but to call him my husband, until he is not anymore) In the messages that I sent to her (AK), I made it very clear that on the contrary of what she might be hearing, I am still married to my husband, living with him and just had a child. Its been two years and I still have not received a response. What I do receive, is constant displays of selfishness and disconcern to me and my son.
I was a fan of AK's last album, we were both signed to J Records and I always checked up on her projects. I sang her songs and admired her for creating Superwoman and Karma, I would never deny her, her talent. I believed in her until I found out she was possibly sleeping with my husband. The affair was denied by both, until it was finally admitted months later.
Already I can hear some of you saying " why are u blaming her, You cant make someone leave their wife, You cant break something thats broken". Well, my marriage was not broken, as far as I knew we were celebrating our sons birth and getting ready to celebrate our 5 year wedding anniversary . Call it blind love, whatever. I call it being a devoted wife.. As far as me blaming her and not blaming him, thats false. Me and my husband have worked out our differences. We are in a good place as people and as parents. I accept his choices and I am comfortable enough with myself to move on. I am so very blessed in many ways.
My concern with AK is no longer the fact that she assisted in destroying a family but that she has the audacity to make these selfish comments about love and wanting to be with someone, even after knowing their situation. How is this the same Superwoman that I sang out loud with in my truck? I ask myself sometimes.
If you are reading this Alicia, let me start by saying, you know what you did. You know the role you played and you know how you contributed to the ending of my marriage. You know that I asked you to step back and let me handle my family issues. Issues that you helped to create.
Im not saying everything was perfect all the time but no relationship is perfect. We made a vow to God and I believe you should have respected that, as a woman. I know you owe me or my son nothing but I just wish you would've handled things more carefully. I'm not judging you, I put you and the whole situation in the hands of God, the Higher Power. Just know that as a woman, I expected so much more from you. I never had intentions on reaching out to you this way but after reading your twits tonight, and the constant disregard, you left me no choice. I feel that after 1 and a half years of you hiding this affair and acting like it doesnt exist, that now is the time to confront it, since you talk so openly about it now
This is not a publicity stunt, I dont have a record coming out. I just need to close this chapter in my life and that means confronting our issues. There is a small child involved. His dad loves him to death and he wants to spend more time with him but hes afraid because he knows we don't have a relationship. This is my main concern. My son NEEDS his dad and I NEED to be comfortable with you. For him!
I know many will see my point and many will not be able to look into what's real because they only want to see Alicia Keys the celebrity, not the human. This is not for the "people", this is for you. Like I said I was left no choice but to reach out to you this way. By now, Im sure you want to find a balance in this as well.
I read your tweets tonight and I felt they were very insensitive. You have no idea how much pain I was caused because of this affair. Its baffling to me that you don't understand what I might have gone through with this situation. I dont consider myself a victim anymore, Ive learned alot from this! I just ask you to try and be a bit more realistic and delicate to the situation, at least until my divorce is final. I felt me attending the party would have been a starting point for us, since you shook my hand after I offered it, but I suppose I was wrong.
If its so, that you and my husband are meant to be together, then God bless you both and I hope you never have to deal with what I did. I would not wish it on my worst enemy. If you two being together forever is the case, its more of a reason for us to get along, because I'm not going anywhere. Theres a child to be raised.
To answer your tweet, choose smart over spark. Sparks burn everyone, be smart! Its simple actually, just think of the shoe being on the other foot.
Stay blessed and lets work this thing out with respect and dignity.
Look, I know there are some of you who don't like him being back. To you I say this:
Either you have never seen anyone rise up outta controversy, failed to rise up outta of it yourself or did so AND NO ONE FORGAVE YOU for it and you are taking it out on him. I could be wrong but that is all I am seeing. @ those who 'don't believe him'/don't wanna see him succeed.
All that talk about him getting flack for wanting to start is bs. I wouldn't want a player on my team whose ultimate goal is to 'back up' someone. That means he is just happy to be there. I want winners. Confident players that want to start. Not sure what the big deal was with that. smh...
Where have they said that at? Peep this Philly area news stations stirring the pot.
Here is a link to the video:

College students could soon be able to ditch their backpacks and put their textbooks into their shirt pockets thanks to a new program that will let them read their books using iPhones or iPod Touch devices.
CourseSmart of San Mateo, California, already makes more than 7000 college textbooks from 12 publishers available to its subscribers online via their computers, but now the company has added "eTextbooks for the iPhone," allowing students to free themselves from even having to lug around their heavy laptop computers.
There are a couple drawbacks -- you have to be connected to the Internet to view the books you can access with your CourseSmart subscription on your iPhone or iPod Touch, and the first version of the new app doesn't allow users to add notes in the margins.
The app itself is free from Apple. "
A school in PA (Drexel University) is using the technology for their students this fall. I hope this does become widespread. Technology finally being used for REAL GOOD. I love it.
Not the idea is exactly 'new'...an example here in Iowa
The Beats Audio HP Envy Laptop will be running on a $1699 price tab but it will feature cutting edge sound audio designed by Dr. Dre’s engineers.
There are a set of headphones that are available.
The MSI X-Slim Series X320 borrows unabashedly from the Air’s design. It’s extremely thin, with a maximum thickness of just 3/4 of an inch (1.98cm) and winglike profile that tapers down to a knifelike edge along the front. It weighs just 2.9 pounds (1.3kg) and has a 13-inch widescreen (16:9 aspect ratio) display, plus an extra-large touchpad. In short, it’s an Air clone.
But the X320 will cost far less than the Air’s $1,800 starting price: It will cost between $700 and $1,000, depending on options, when it goes on sale this spring, an MSI representative told Wired.com.
Naturally, such cost cutting doesn’t come without compromises. The X320
has an attractive but chintzy-looking plastic housing. It was decidedly difficult to open (long fingernails might help in prying the clamlike halves of the shell apart). And instead of OS X, the X320 is running Windows Vista

Even still, I am going to try to put up the TAMEST pics of Rosa's new flicks I can find. If you know anything about this Dominican gal it is that she doesn't take 'tame' pics. So...............Yeah if you click on the LINK, you do so at your own risk. Don't go blaming me. (No, she is not nude, I WOULD TELL YOU THAT, but she isn't really 'clothed' either.)
I am sure many of you remember her from this post with the 'now deleted' (Don't click if you wanna see the vids. They are GONE!) vids...http://thewarehous.blogspot.com/2009/07/i-see-once-again-my-generation-and-ones.html
Allow me to reintroduce that video to you...With a working link..
Ghostface, Angela Yee and Rosa BUGGIN THE F#CK OUT!!! Seriously buggin' out. Don't listen to this at work mayne...lol

Like the article alludes to, HERE WE WERE THINKING T.O would be the issue?? How wrong were WE????
